Professor Dylan Wiliam
We are delighted to have Professor John Sweller - the world's leading authority on CLT - joining us for this live conference. He is an Emeritus Professor who is best known for formulating this theory which uses our knowledge of evolutionary psychology and human cognitive architecture as a base for instructional design. CLT is one of the most highly regarded and regularly cited theories in education and has been described as "The Next Big Thing" (Chartered College of Teaching).
Steve is a Dragonfly senior trainer and an author of the forthcoming book 'Cognitive Load Theory: A Pocketbook for Teachers'. Professor Sweller provided ongoing feedback during the writing of the book and Steve was delighted when Professor Sweller agreed to write the foreward for it too.
Steve is a highly experienced and skilled teacher trainer. He has delivered CPD to over 15,000 teachers across 30 countries around the globe.
